New Details Emerge Regarding Demise Of Agnes Tirop After Autopsy Results

Autopsy results for murdered athlete Agnes Tirop were conducted at the Iten County Referral Hospital (ICRH) morgue on Tuesday, October 19, uncovering more details encompassing her demise.

The post-mortem showed that Tirop died because of injuries brought about by stab wounds on the neck. Moreover, she was hit on the head with a blunt object. The three-hour-long post-mortem was conducted by two pathologists and a forensic physician at the ICRH in the sight of a family pathologist.

Addressing journalists, pathologist Dr Dorothy Njeru expressed they had prepared a report and given it over to homicide investigators at the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI).

Notwithstanding, Njeru didn't uncover the number of stab wounds that Tirop persevered before her demise, taking note of that the DCI officials would give more details.

"For the most part, the examination has shown injuries because of blunt post-trauma," Njeru expressed.

Following the post-mortem, the body was moved to Eldoret Hospital funeral home ahead of internment in Kapnyamisa village, Nandi County. "My sister's internment will be on Saturday. We are moving the body to Eldoret to ease our preparations for internment," Limo, the late athlete's elder sister expressed.

The major suspect in the homicide, Emmanuel Ibrahim Rotich, was on Monday, October 18, charged at the Iten Law Courts.

Senior Principal Magistrate, Charles Kutwa, directed Rotich to be confined at the Eldoret Police Station for 20 days forthcoming investigations.
